Welcome to the Strange Brew Knit-Along or KAL!
We're happy to introduce our very first ever live, interactive video KAL. You can drop in and engage with other knitters, or participate however you feel most comfortable. Take part actively or passively from the comfort of your home, in your favorite knitting spot, while enjoying the conversation and company of other knitters.
It's our virtual knitting circle, but you can wear your PJs!
You will receive a special voice/video link to the KAL chat room. Click on the link at the scheduled time and you'll be connected to the other participants. The video part makes it fun because you can see what everyone is working on,
talk about yarn and color choices, and share knitting tips if you'd like.
The Strange Brew Recipe
The beauty of this project is that YOU are the designer! This highly popular pattern by the TinCanKnits team offers so much detailed, helpful guidance in swatching and measuring to knit a garment customized for you. They even include a sheet of graph paper and many fair isle motifs from which to choose. You'll need to purchase the pattern over on Ravelry here: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/strange-brew
Moderator: Lorraine Gaudet, Knitting Instructor
Lorraine will use the hooded pullover she designed as an example of the different techniques and processes she used.
It's only a guide and your project may or may not include these elements.
